RIP 9mm hollow point ammunition redefines the genre.
G2 Researchs RIP (Radically Invasive Projectile) self-defense ammunition is a devastatingly effective choice for the concealed carry enthusiast. This 9mm ammo features a precision-machined solid copper lead-free projectile designed to produce deep penetration of fourteen to sixteen inches and a six-inch spread of nine separate wound channels. Not even sheet metal, sheetrock, or windshields will stop these rounds from reaching their target.

The copper-tipped machined bullets don’t just make a single penetration into their target. Instead, RIP rounds can produce up to nine different points of entry with a single shot. RIP rounds were introduced in 2014 by a company called G2 Research. G2 Research took the concept of Advanced Energy Technology, or AET, and amplified it. rip ammo 9mm
